Mystery final finishes

Some 'final' finishes of the Mystery SAL are now arriving. First up is Barbara of To Stitch or Not to Stitch. Barbara chose to stitch her mystery on a 30ct hand-dyed linen with a dark blue Mandarin floss and finished into a sewing case using a pretty green cotton for the lining and pocket with a silk ribbon closure to match the blue stitching. Inside is blue wool felt for her needles and mother of pearl holders for her threads. They say that 'blue and green should never be seen' but I think that Barbara has proved that this saying is definitely not so. Congratulation Barbara on such a wonderful finish.

Next up is Jo of Serendipitous Stitching. This version is stitched on 36ct white even weave linen with a hand-dyed silk floss from De Havilland threads. Jo found the perfect box to mount her beautiful stitching - congratulations Jo!

Last, but certainly not the least, is June (no blog). June stitched on a 40ct linen using a variegated thread from her stash and finished on the same style Hobby Lobby card box that I used for mine except that she painted hers white and used ric-rac edging - how pretty - congratulations June!

A big thank you to these ladies for sending me pictures of their final finishes and if you have a 'final' finish you wish to share please send me your pictures.

For those of you who missed the signups for this SAL, the pattern is now available *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar.

Thanks for visiting
Take care
